If they had known about no-till gardening, it would have been much easier.
Some of you may know about this website. Excellant.
WW2 Home Gardens
(Film plays for 20 minutes on-line!) A farm garden is portrayed in the film
but the same message was sent to city residents. "The Holder family in
Maryland lays out a quarter acre Victory Garden during World War II. Most of the
gardening work is done by Grandpa Holder and his teenage grandchildren Rick and
Amy and from the looks of the film, it's backbreaking. There's the early
garden of peppers, tomatoes, pole beans, potatoes, asparagus and sweet corn.
Then, there's the late garden with beets, squash, late potatoes, late cabbage,
kale, collard greens and three rows of turnips. To save gasoline, they use a
horse and plow and humble farm implements."
